Engagement Card

I have a new toy - Martha Stewart Lace Heart edge punch. I used it this morning to make an engagement card. I have made a several engagement cards lately (and I wish I had this punch then as I think it is just right for engagement cards) and I have been remiss in photographing them. Inside this card I have put the sentiment, a couple of large punched hearts and a litle bit of the paper used on the front and, of course, my wishes to the happy couple.

Visit to the Doll Hospital

On 8th May, I took my Aunt to the Doll Hospital Bexley, NSW. She has owned Rosemary, a celluloid doll, since childhood. Rosemary was in need of some medical attention. Mickey (my cousin's soft toy) came along as well as he needed a clean and and some TLC. Rosemary was belted in and away we went. Now if you have never been to the Doll Hospital it was a wonder of dolls and soft toys and all things dolly. After Rosemary and Mickey were checked in - they will be there for a few weeks we headed to Eden Gardens, Ryde for lunch. A fun day.

Thank you from Jordan

I went to the mailbox yesterday and in there was a postcard from Jordan. I thought first of all it was from a friend who was in this area in November and her postcard got lost/delayed.
I wrote sometime ago that I was making Mother's Day cards to be sent to Australian troops overseas. I am so excited that some of mine made it to Jordan and that they took the time to write a thank you. Now I don't know if this is confidential info. so I have blocked out details that were on the bottom of the card.

Birthday time

Images:(c)1990-2010 Stampin'Up!(r) Artwork:Margaret L Crawford
It is my brother's birthday this week and here is the card I have made for him. He is a carpenter so the faux woodgrain technique seemed just right. And this year his daughter, my sister and I have all put in to get him 2 two Gold Class Tickets (and a box of chocolates) as his gift so "enjoy" was just the right sentiment. Yes the edges are roughed up (including the edges of the card) to add to the rustic feel of the card.

Challenge: Unusual shaped card - Cupcake anyone?

Another challenge to day was to make a card that was not square or rectangle. I used the cupcake stamp from Simple Birthday Thanks to create this card. The second image shows how I have positioned the stamp on folded CS. I cheekily punched out shape to show that someone as already eaten the cupcake!! Enjoy.

Who said men don't like cards with flowers on them?

This weekend Rhonda over at th...INK with "EMBELLISHED" has set some challenges. Her first was to create two cards identical but the difference being one is for female and one for a male. Different colours, scallop punches and ribbon/twine, so I hope I passed the challenge. Off to do some more.

Happy Moments

All images Stampin'Up! (r) unless indicated
I have purchased 4 Copic markers and I used them to colour in the images from SU Happy Moments stamp set - I stamped out an A4 sheet of Very Vanilla CS (sorry it came out white in photo). I am very pleased with the result - what do you think?

Welcome Baby (Babies)

All supplies Stampin'Up! (r) unless otherwise indicated.
A couple of friends have had baby girls recently and here are the cards I have just created for them. I decided to go for a non-traditional baby card and have used paper from Stampin'Up! Sweet Nothings Simply Scrappin' kit. Some now retired stamps/ribbon and a little flower from my stash complete the card. Welcome to world Chloe and Isabelle.
